This collection of reports written by local experts from ten Asian nations (Australia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, The Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam) compares the laws and public policy that regulate and influence the nonprofit sectors in these countries. As international organizations play an increasingly central role in world development and change, their success becomes contingent upon understanding the complex legal disparities between nonprofit sectors of varying societies. Philanthropy and Law in Asia provides international audiences with timely insights into these legal incongruities as well as the regulations affecting the nonprofit sector in Asia.
The essays in this comprehensive volume are the culmination of extensive legal research and analysis inspired by the Asia Pacific Philanthropy Consortium's Comparative Nonprofit Law Project. Each essay shares a common analytic framework, helping both practitioners and scholars to understand the ways in which nonprofit legal systems are regulated and structured throughout Asia. With this knowledge, international legislators, government officers, policy makers, nonprofit leaders, and legal counselors will be able to develop better intergovernmental cooperation and legal synergism. Philanthropy and Law in Asia is the up-to-date resource for those who wish to strengthen and improve the nonprofit sector in this significant region of the world.
The Asia Foundation is part of the Asia Pacific Philanthropy Consortium and one of the driving forces behind Philanthropy and Law in Asia. It is a private, nonprofit, non-governmental organization dedicated to building leadership, improving policies, and strengthening institutions to foster greater openness and shared prosperity in the Asia Pacific region. The Asia Foundation has provided substantial assistance for the development of legislative systems in 16 countries and has supported more than 800 public interest, non-governmental organizations in the region.
